Photos From the Road

One thing MP and I both adore is a road trip.  The leaving the house at 4am part is the absolute worst...but by sunrise I am all in.








Our friends were home and cat sitting in the Napa Valley.  When the offer was made to join them for a few days, I began counting out my vitamins and prepped the house for the launch.

    Spending time with you and Bob was life-giving. Thank you for making the trek and exploring the Wine Country with us! God is good … all the time.

      I wonder what is more appealing: the beauty of God’s creation or the Sharon/Peg gourmet meals? I know the meals are more fun to make and eat, but God’s creation up there can’t be beat.

      Enjoy every moment, which I know you are…..betsy

    I get excited just looking at the photos of those delicious looking meals! The photographer isn’t bad either. Not only do they look delicious but I loved the colors — so festive!!! Bob and Bruce, you are very fortunate men to have wives with the wonderful gifts of cooking and savoring. The surrounding area looks beautiful. It’s such a special place to have such a special time together!! Enjoy!

    How wonderful to think of the four of you together in the beautiful Napa Valley!! I can just imagine the fun you had cooking together and enjoying those magnificent dishes in a boomy evening setting. Love the quote: “My friend shall forever be my friend and reflect a ray of God to me.” How lovely to know that God has given you exactly that. Much love to each one of you, Carol
